I think that HAS to be the MOST random combination of CHARACTERS, EVENTS AND OBJECTS. EVER.

A NICELY DRESSED WALRUS riding a CRAZY TRIKE on a BEACH with MOUNTAINS in the back ground and a LONELY CRAB starting at him ....

Well done

How random.

The first thing this reminded me of was beer. Okay, that seems pretty random,except that maybe I'm a little thirsty.

But seriously, this looks like it could be the label for one of those microbrews with the really odd names. Walrus on a Bicycle Pale Ale. Bipedal Wheeled Walrus Lager. Like that.

Congrats InfinityLoop! I like the design; it's rather whimsical and I enjoy the muted colors. If this had been on brown I probably would've scooped it up pretty quickly, but as it's on creme I'll have to give it some consideration. I understand the softness the creme conveys though - I just don't believe I own any brown shirts, and this sure would've looked nice on brown.

By "stuff", Mr. Crabs obviously meant the tusks. Not that other, uh, appendage.

There Woot.
That's my limerick for your blog.
Hope you approve.



I enjoyed this very much, although I feel concerned for Mr.Crab. How could I not!?!?

Why did I think it was more strange that the design is similar to the shape of south america than the fact that there is a walrus riding a bike?

Despite the lyrics of Glass Onion and the condition of this shirt, the walrus was not, in fact, Paul. It was John.

"John" does not rhyme with "all" however, so we can chalk it up to artistic license, and also drugs.

And don't get me started on that egg fellow.

And I should also add, the walrus hates Freud because he is misattributing the psychological concept of compensation to Freud when it was actually introduced by Adler. According to Wiki at least - I'm no psych student.

Reminds me of Huggermugger. I wonder what the Walrus did to the frog.

As someone who rides these bikes, I can tell you that doing a header (hitting something that stops the front wheel and lets the backbone swing over) is not fun. Your legs are trapped under the handlebars and the entire (up to 90 pounds) of the backbone is coming down on top of you. Keep in mind helmets weren't around at the time, and you would be riding on cobblestone. Our walrus friend would be having a hard time riding in sand, that's for sure!

As to people wondering how he gets up there, there's a little step on the back right of the backbone, right above the small wheel, and you give a few pushes to get coasting while standing on that step, then climb up while rolling along. It's easier than it sounds, trust me.

And in case anyone is wondering, the reason the wheels are so much larger on pennyfarthings was because the chain and sprocket weren't around, so gearing was done directly with wheel size, the pedals are mounted right to the wheel. The larger the wheel, the farther you would go with one rotation of the pedals.

And keep in mind, people were used to being on horses, so the bikes weren't that terribly high in comparison. They certainly were quite a step up from the velocipede, but that's a story for another woot.


My family owns the pedaling history bicycle museum in Orchard Park, NY, if anyone is wondering how I know all of this.

yeah yeah, old basic site design (at least there's no flash), I keep telling my grandparents to update it to at least a nicer looking theme, but whatever, they're old.

A materials company in Dover,
made a weather balloon they named "Rover".
When Rover was asked,
"Sir, now, what is your task?"
He'd say, "It's to knock people over!"

The real value to this shirt is that it seems perfectly sane at first, so someone would be talking to you and all of a sudden they realize that it's not an old gentleman, it's a walrus. And then in mid-sentence, they've thrown themselves completely off track trying to make sense of a walrus in a suit on top of an old-fashioned bicycle in the sand. What seemed normal before is now completely confusing. And then they just switch gears and offer to buy you lunch.

Different bike, though.

Yeah for sure, but the old bike thing is an instant attribution to Fat Tire. What would Freud say about that?

Please refrain from using sesquipedalians when you are too tired to spell them correctly, write with proper grammar, or make any sense at all.

Then again, I suppose not making sense suits the shirt tonight. Mmm, wonderful nonsense.

A common mistake, the "Coo, coo, ca-choo" is actually from "Mrs. Robinson" by Simon and Garfunkel.

Correctly, "Goo goo ga joob" is from "I Am The Walrus" by The Beatles.

Now we know.
